The ‘O’Brien Icehouse’ is widely regarded as one of the most successful establishments of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere at the present time.
Since that time, “the Icehouse” has taken great pride in being the proud home of training facilities that are on par with the best in the world for both professional athletes and novices. O’Brien Icehouse has developed into the center of ice sports and entertainment in Australia, and it will continue to hold this position with the assistance of the ongoing support of the Victorian Government, O’Brien Group Australia, and the Olympic Winter Institute of Australia.
“The Icehouse” is the only dual-rink facility in Australia, and it features two Olympic-sized ice skating rinks, stadium seating for 1,000 people, 2,300 pairs of skates available for hire, rink-based sound and light systems, a specialised winter sports gym, a café, a bar, and four function rooms.
O’Brien Group Australia is a significant company in the venue management, catering, and leisure industries. The company owns and runs a variety of large leisure venues across Australia and New Zealand, including O’Brien Icehouse. This alliance offers major assistance to all of the ‘Icehouse’ operations, including their highly regarded school programs and both of Victoria’s national ice hockey teams, the Melbourne Ice and the Melbourne Mustangs.
